NOTE: This event was postponed from June 2020 and will now take place on 8 July 2021.
Britten Sinfonia and Opera Rara revive their successful partnership to present a rarely performed exotic Donizetti Italian operatic masterpiece set in the West Indies.
A stellar cast is conducted by new Opera Rara Artistic Director Carlo Rizzi and sees the return of soloist Albina Shagimuratova, following her acclaimed performances of Il Paria at the Barbican in June 2019.
Opera Rara specialises in bringing neglected operatic masterworks back into the public domain and presenting fresh, engaging recordings and concert performances. They have made a particular success of championing Donizetti’s music and this event continues that long-term project.
